    Breer's shilling of his alma mater is pretty over the top, and he's a shitty reporter on top of that. Have no clue how he's still employed in any recognizable position.

    Long time Chicago radio host and 670 "The Score" original Terry Boers is hanging it up today. Been with the station since 1992. Part of Boers an Bernstein, which blows away any sports show I have ever listened to in Boston. There have been nearly a dozen times I have almost driven off the road laughing since I moved out here in 2005 to this show.

    As soon as I saw Deadspin's Rex Ryan article today, I knew that an epic SJH rant would appear in the comments. I was not disappointed.

    The oft-disgraced Rob Parker has turned up as a weekend host on Fox Sports Radio. This morning, he said that he knows "in his gut" that, eventually, Belichick, Brady and the Patriots will be thought of as "Lance Armstrong without the bicycle" and be forever tarnished.

    I live to serve.

    That article offended me, honestly. Dom, the writer, covered the Jets on a beat when Rex was their coach, and these so-called tough NY media-types all fell over themselves to fellate the guy because he gave them good material. And now that Rex has failed his dumb ass right out of the league, Dom goes on to say, "Ooooh, he was too human to succeed!" Fuck you, no. That's total brown-nosing bullshit and it offends the hell out of me. Act like a fucking professional.

    An important status update:
    Last Friday, I was fired by the New York Post for tweeting on my own time seven days earlier my personal belief that Donald Trump becoming President of the United States is a national tragedy.

    Happy to see today's news that CSNNE has added Kayce Smith. I've been able to get to know her a little over the last year and I think you guys are going to love her. Knowledgable, great work ethic, personable, and a stone cold fox. Great hire.

    What's happened to the 108 Stitches newsletter from Alex Speier? I haven't gotten one since last Friday, I figured they would be coming near daily during Spring Training.

    Edit: There it is in my inbox this afternoon, with a plan to publish daily M-F starting next week.

    Is there anyone with a regular gig worse than Adam Jones. I keep sampling on my evening commute and lasting 2 minutes with him. An angry, negative know-it-all. No thanks.

    I made the critical error of clicking on a link to a Ron Borges article. To say that he has reached the point of self-caricature would be a massive understatement.

    I'm not trying to be a wise-ass, but I honestly forgot that Ron Borges wrote anything any more. And I actually almost forgot that he was still alive.

    I deeply apologize for reminding you of his existence. The picture included with the article makes your "still alive" point debatable.

    That's okay. Anyone with a Natty Boh avatar is good people, even if they do remind me of Ron Borges' existence.

    It's kind of batshit for the writers to take this stance. Am i wrong or are they essentially saying Twitter reports need to live outside the editorial process in the name of speed? I mean yeah that's the hard reality of the market today, but now it's now a GOOD thing?

    I get both sides. The writers are saying this is how news works now, we need the freedom to post the information we get while it is timely and worthwhile. Understood is that it raises a writer/reporters status to have a reputation for breaking news. The paper is saying that no, vetting sources and verifying information is the job of an editorial staff, and reporters should respect that. Otherwise, the paper and reporter risk their reputation of being trustworthy. And a reporter who wants to raise his status should not be the one judging the viability of sources. That is not his/her job. That is what the editorial staff is there for.

    Personally, I don't care about a 5, 10, or 40 minute delay on getting the latest scoop. Twitter news all get filed under rumors for me and I ignore them, but I know that is not how most people treat random things they read or hear on the internet. I would prefer things get confirmed or vetted, and that I can trust "news" I read, but I'm probably a dinosaur these days. So I would side with the paper in this case.

    In opening his discussion re: Sox offensive woes with Thomase on their WEEI show this morning, Butch Stearns said nobody is talking about the 800-pound gorilla in the room, David Ortiz.
    As a shocked Thomase stammered about that not being appropriate, I think I heard Butch say "Pun intended" or maybe it was "No pun intended"

    Either way, he might be the dumbest human alive.

    Did he follow that up by apologizing and saying he didn't think Papi weighed more than 400 lbs max?

    I had arrived at my destination and couldn't stick around to hear what, if any, damage control followed. My dog was my only passenger and I wouldn't be stunned if I was the only listener.

    I understand that race has been a very sensitive issue around here over the past week, but isn't that just a saying? I've heard a version of that for as long as I can remember.

    I'm asking that question seriously. I've used "comments from the peanut gallery" a bunch of times in my life, but read in another thread here that it could have racist undertones. I had no idea.

    It's just a saying. I was listening at the time, and Thomase's reaction didn't even register with me. I assume he was just trying to trip up Stearns for his own amusement. Can't say I blame him.

    It is a common saying, and people (and especially stupid people) who talk in public a lot often fall back on favorite phrases and common cliches or sayings to get them through it while they try to talk and think at the same time. And there is nothing inherently racist about that saying. But when you use it in relation to a very large black athlete, and your cohosts probably look at you like you just really f-ed up, you should probably stop very noticeably and acknowledge that it was really bad phrasing, apologize, and move on. It's like when ESPN published a rushed headline about Jeremy Lin having a bad outing that said "Chink in the armor." Perfectly valid phrase with no racist origin, but you have to realize it was a bad idea to use it in that context the minute you really look at it.

    I thought Tomase was pretty clearly taken aback in his immediate reaction. Again, I didn't stick around for more than a few seconds later.

    Did you hear the "Pun intended" or "No pun intended" line? I may have misheard it because they were talking over one another at that point.

    I just went to "audio on demand" and rolled the tape a few times. It was "No pun intended," though Tomase inadvertently stepped on the "no," which came after a lengthy pause. It was at that point that Tomase continued with, "well, let's not..." and they plowed ahead. I think Stearns could have skipped the NPI remark, and Tomase would have left it alone.

    Yes, this examination is probably more scrutiny than the incident bears.

    Jon Bois creates another brilliant piece. This time it's a science fiction story about the future of football. Difficult to describe and absolutely worth your time.

    bump to this

    Everyone on TSH is playing Jones' reaction to the Devers triple play earlier in the week.

    For those who haven't heard, Jones was like mocking everyone's excitement, calling it a routine play. Even Felger called him a "condescending prick".

    During the exchange whoever sits in with Jones said something like "well fans get excited when they see a triple play." and Jones retorts with "DO THEY??" in his ahole tone. All 3 of the other shows these past few days have been hammering him on it. "Even Adam Jones can shit on a triple play!" essentially

    This is, quite possible, the most bizarre sportswriting story I have ever read.

    Male BP writer has been harassing women, isn't actually male.
